Q. In RegCure, what is the Ignore list?
A. Dear "Confused"
There are times when registry keys do not meet RegCure's criteria and are flagged as invalid. This can include empty registry keys that are still in use by applications that are not active at the time of the RegCure scan. By using the Ignore list, you can have RegCure not identify them in subsequent scans. For more information on the Ignore list and how to use it, please see our support page http://support.paretologic
The Internet has become an important part of the lives of today's young people. But is it safe? In 2006, more than 85 per cent of all teenagers were using the Internet and at any given time there were 50,000 predators online, according to TV news magazine Dateline. In an effort to make the Internet a better place for youth, ParetoLogic is launching PGsurfer. This software was created to help parents protect their children online. Deciding not to profit on children's safety, the young, family-oriented company is excited to offer PGsurfer free of charge. Click here, to get a look at this exciting, free software....
"We have been fortunate enough to have experienced great success with our other products and we are really pleased to be able to offer this product to caregivers and parents free of charge," said ParetoLogic CEO and co-founder Elton Pereira. "This is the most rewarding application of our skills and knowledge bar none, and it is one that is close to the hearts of our staff."
PGsurfer is a powerful tool that parents can use to help keep their children safe online. PGsurfer is content filtering software, but rather than just indiscriminately blocking sites it allows parents to establish profiles of each user so that the filtering is appropriate. It puts the power into the parents' hands.
Ever walk into your corner store, pick up some chips and then instead of the clerk telling you the total, you let him know you'll pay $1.50?
The concept of "pay whatever you want" might seem strange and probably unworkable in most settings. However, much loved English rock band Radiohead has garnered plenty of attention by using that model with their latest album, "In Rainbows." Fans can download the band's first album since 2003 for whatever price they want - including free - from its website.
This effort by the critically acclaimed band - which earned its success with albums such as OK Computer and Kid A - has sparked a number of debates about the future of the recording industry. One popular one is whether the "pay whatever you want" model is the future of recorded music.
"I personally don't see it as the final solution in our current society," said Piers Henwood in an interview with the ParetoLogic newsletter.
When surfing the Internet, Canadians seem to have a soft spot for searching for a certain short Hollywood leading man and marijuana.
According to an Oct. 18, Sydney Morning Herald story, Google Trends reports "Tom Cruise" is searched for in Canada more often than any other country in the world. The United States and Australia round out the top three countries looking for the scoop on the movie star of such films as Top Gun and the Mission Impossible series. Those three countries, in the same order, are also the most interested in finding out more about pot.
Google Trends records statistics of all Google searches dating back to 2004. It can display the searches by country and city.
For example, Viagra is most often searched for by Italians living in Augusta and Milan. Third on the list of Viagra searchers are London, England dwellers, according to an Oct. 18, 2007 New York Post story.
